with bob twittering. >> no, no. tweet, whatever. the second thing to say is it wasn't so much the right, and there were people on the romney side trying to push it. it was the left. it was the left that went crazy on obama! they wanted a grudge match, a cage match. they wanted -- >> that's why even the obama campaign thinks they lost. >> yeah, that's the problem. >> when they come out tend with the spinners, it was all romney people. >> who knew that preparation with joy bearrest would have been a bad idea? spending all that time on the couch. obama had such a rough night that sandra fluke called him to see if he was doing okay. i thought that was pretty touching. i actually felt -- it's the worst possible feeling that you could have is to feel sorry for somebody and i felt like i was watching the washington generals playing the harlem globetrotters. that's a basketball reference. i wanted to make sure you knew that. but i bet at this point, romney's garbage man is voting for him. obama to me, he remained me of homer simpson rolling down the mountain and continually, no matter what he d
: i'm reading the bob word ward book and paints not a pretty picture of what's going on at the white house. maybe they don't know what they're do. let's factor in the possibility of a total imcompetence. which is terrible! >> right. it's one of those things that they either knew what they were doing or they did not know what they were doing. which is worse? >> gretchen: they also had the videotape situation to use as a cover ostensibly tore a considerable amount of time. and also you have to factor in that the average american is not paying attention to foreign policy and otherwise on a daily basis like we are on this couch and people who typically watch fox news. they're not. so what is in their mind for foreign policy is that president obama took out osama bin laden. >> i don't know. i think that people are paying enough attention across the board to look at this and you could even look at some of the headlines in main stream media and say, they certainly screwed up on september 11 on the anniversary and then they didn't have their story straight and they still won't admit they di

a mile away. here is republican senator bob corker this morning. they are demanding specific communications between ambassador stevens and the state department. >> at a time most americans would want to rally around our country at the death of four americans serving our country instead we've had this bizarre response which only leads me to believe, number one, there was gross negligence or incompetence involved or this administration doesn't want all of us to realize that libya may now be a failed state if the fbi agents who are well-trained can't even make it into benghazi. >> with growing calls for ambassador susan rice resign over her comments that benghazi was a demonstration spun out of control had strong defense this weekend by senior obama cam main advisor. >> i was shocked to see representative king attack ambassador rice because she was acting on the intelligence given her to the intelligence community. to say she should resign, she is one of the most remarkable splendid public servants that is thoroughly irresponsible. >> reporter: two final observations about axelr
stores again and again. fox 5's bob barnard with the details from our newsroom. >> these crimes are happening during your morning commute when kids are on their way to school. the armed gunmen have robbed three stores, one in a busy strip mall. this is surveillance video of the two suspects committing their most recent crime, a robbery last tuesday morning. their target? the east pines liquor store here on riverdale road in riverdale, maryland. in the video you can see the men pretty clearly wearing dark clothing and ball caps as they confront the two store employees working that morning. one of the robbers would pull out a gun and demand to be let inside the office. we visited the store this evening. one of the victims told us off camera he told the robbers he didn't have a key. so they bound his and his co- workers wrist with plastic zip ties and made them get on the floor. prince george's county police say they believe the same two men robbed at least two other liquor stores last month, one in suitland and this place on september 4th. it's david's liquors in the lan dove hill
. steve centanni is live in washington with more on this. >> reporter: one is bob corker a member of the foreign relations committee saying the benghazi incident is more bizarre every day. he wrote a letter to the director of national intelligence. it says 18 days ago the administration judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded. what has changed in libya such a short time that our f.b.i. agents, most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city? meantime, republicans kept up the drum beat on the administration's response and the president's foreign policy. >> the response was slow. it was confused, it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack. in this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself but the problem is bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> reporter: he said he would let others decide if the president was involved in a cover-up. meantime, obama advisors respond

what you have to say. bob is in new york city on the democratic line. caller: i have two questions for the candidates. why, in this day and age, are women's reproductive rights even being called up? are they aware that in this century, at this late date -- why are we going back and rehashing this? an issue that has been dealt with and should not even be on the table? also, i would want to know possibly, and i will vote for the president, and from him i would want to know why -- i thought that his calling when he came to office was to get on top of wall street, get on top of that problem with the big banks, with all the crazy financing that even some of the experts cannot understand. again, i will vote for him, maybe he will do this in the next term, deal with the big banks and the issues surrounding why they have not been regulated or clamped down on in a meaningful way so that we can go forward. if we are going to talk about certainty, we need to know that the banks will not be falling back into the abyss that they got us into before. host: richard, republican line, hello. caller:
. well, if it isn't mr. margin. mr. margin? don't be modest, bob. you found a better way to pack a bowling ball. that was ups. and who called ups? you did, bob. i just asked a question. it takes a long time to pack a bowling ball. the last guy pitched more ball packers. but you... you consulted ups. you fod a better way. that's logistics. that's margin. find out what else ups knows. i'll do that. you're on a roll. that's funny. i wasn't being funny, bob. i know. >> welcome back, quick headlines, police arresting nearly two dozen people after an occupy protest gets ugly and trying to stop demonstrators from blocking traffic and one officer was hurt and is expected to be okay. volunteers in florida making calls for president obama's presidential campaign get a surprise visitor. ann romney, stopping by in orlando, call center with pizza and meeting people and signing autographs and put to work by making phone calls and get on the phone. need some help. peter. >> peter: thanks, clayton. a 18 year army veteran has been flagged over a course he was teaching on radical islam. lt. colon
're seeing the impact on our data. host: bob, welcome to the conversation. caller: thank you very much. i happen to be one of those snow angels that the other lady -- host: is very happy about. [laughter] caller: i lived through the depression, so you can imagine how all i am. i wanted to comment on this recession that we're going through. it started 60 years ago when a new england lost its leather industry. that is a terrible blow to this country, we hope it doesn't continue. then 40 years ago, it lost its apparel industry trade in large plant -- i met a gentleman who worked for a plant in south america, and i asked him what he did, and he took care of all the machinery. "we have 12 plants in south america --" host: i have to jump in, because we are just about out of time. exporting jobs in the earlier part of the 20th-century -- what was behind that? there was not a nafta agreement. guest: but it still had to do with the changing global economy. for the u.s., it made more sense, purely economically, to buy it cheaper from a lower- cost country. look at what happened in the uk. they were
about campaign finance, and they took place in a world where someone like bob dole was the republican leader. and he was interested in making sure republicans didn't get a bad deal, but he was not opposed to the idea of reform or legislation. in today's world with mitch mcconnell as the senate leader, you know, he has spent years opposing legislation in this area and seeking to shut down the regulation we have. it is at least partially because of senator, maybe largely because of senator mcconnell that we have an sec that is deadlocked 3-3 and unable to take any action because it takes four votes. talk about a super majority requirement, a two-thirds requirement for the sec to do anything, so we shouldn't be surprised they don't. having said that, i think there really is a change on the way congress looks at this on partisan lines. i still hold out hope that after the election in a new congress they will at least take a look at the disclosure side because there the supreme court was crystal clear in citizens united 8-1, the one part the minority joined in, saying that disclosure of al

the record. buffets bob, you know, i wouldn't have won with just doing social media. we won the election because we paired new forms of communication with voters and more traditional forms which is door knocking. for folks to meet me face to face and have a conversation with the living room or the cichen about the issues facing them and their family. that's what put me over the finish line. we have 89-year-old saying they lived here for the entire life and not once has the mare mayor knock on the door. it is the most important thing. you target the voters and you know how many votes you need to win. you get the voters out to vote. but at the same time, you know, i think why to piggy back on the door knocking with the social media thousands of people being able to read a post or opinion was important and to switch it over to governing it's become important. what we have been able to do as mayor we haven't been able to do. we have checks and balances and city council or the school committee, and so, you know, oftentimes whether there's an important issue you go to the city council chamber
